Melvin Mora sidelined after car accident
Mora's car was hit from behind Monday in the Phoenix area. He is being held out for precautionary reasons.
Mora was scheduled to start at third base in a split-squad game against the Chicago White Sox in Tucson, but did not play.
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson says he's heard reports that Mora is OK. The 39-year-old Mora hit .285 in 113 games last season for the Colorado Rockies.
